OVER 150,000 unemployed graduates are jostling for recruitment into the services of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
The commission, in an effort to boost its staff strength, recently conducted aptitude test in six locations spread across the country.
According to the Director, Corporate Communication, Mr Anthony Okwudiafor, over 150,000 unemployed Nigerians responded to the recruitment advertorials, which appeared in six national dailies.
He noted that the examination, which covered questions in current affairs, Mathematics and English, was essentially computer-based.
The purpose of this, according to the Director, Human Capital Management, Ms Winifred Ojeih, was to provide a level playing field for all qualified Nigerians.
She said all the applicants had equal opportunity of working in the commission once they excelled in the aptitude test and subsequent oral interview sessions scheduled for this month.
Meanwhile, the Director General and Chief Executive of NIMC, Mr Chris Onyemenam, has warned applicants not to offer money to anybody in order to secure employment.
Onyemenam, who said the NIMC jobs are not for said, added that if anyone was caught either receiving or giving money, such would be handed over to the law enforcement agencies for prosecution.
